In signing a new deal, Darren has effectively committed his future to the club. He joined from Portsmouth in 1992 and has since been capped 29 times by England. A proportion of those England caps were awarded to him by Glenn, and his relationship with his former national manager is a key element in the midfielder extending his reign at the Lane.
The capture of Darren on an extended deal follows that of Les Ferdinand, who signed a two-year extension, and young prospect Johnnie Jackson, who last week signed a three-year agreement.
Glenn earlier stated that Darren staying on would be like signing a new player, as our midfield star turn has yet to appear since Glenn's return. His return to action will further strengthen a squad boosted by the addition of £1.4m defender Goran Bunjevcevic, Gus Poyet and the second coming of Teddy Sheringham.
Darren Anderton has handed Glenn a massive pre-season boost by signing a new four-year contract to remain at White Hart Lane.
